Story Book Pumpkin-Pinkalicous Pumpkin

Last week I came across this blog post showcasing these storybook pumpkins- Check them out here:

I absolutely loved each and every pumpkin on there.  I think it is a very neat idea for each classroom to take the time to pick a favorite story and then brainstorm on how they can showcase that story on a pumpkin.  I think my favorite on the list was Fancy Nancy.  ADORABLE!  

I know most of you who follow this blog know my daughter loves Pinkalicous!  We just had a fun Pinkalicous Birthday party for her so we took some time to create our own story book pumpkin. 

We had a white pumpkin just waiting to get painted so we started by painting the pumpkin pink.  After the paint dried my daughter used markers to make the face.  Then with my help I used yarn and pipe cleaners to make the pig tales.  We also still had a wand from her party that Natasha Crafts had created and had to put that on.  We also attached some pink wings just like Pinkalicous.  The last thing we made was a crown using pipe cleaners.  Overall my daughter loves it.  We put the pumpkin next to our Mr and Mrs. Potato Head Pumpkins on our porch swing... I love our pumpkins this year!



This is beyond cute, I have a Pinkalicious fan here that LOVED it! Featured you this week on the Sunday Showcase along with your pipe cleaner pumpkins too :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
